Rift deepens at Ecovillage 2; residents to protest against developer
Greater Noida: Ecovillage 2, a highrise society in Greater Noida West, is again in the news for various reasons – services, maintenance charges, incomplete facilities and completion certificates etc. The rift between the management and around 2,500 families living in different towers of the society seems to have deepen as the residents have threatened to go on protest against the developer on Sunday.
In a letter written to developer, the residents reminded that the management was yet to get occupation certificates (OC) and completion certificates from the authority. They said the society is lacking in mandatory Solid Waste Management (SWM) and Sewerage Treatment Plant (STP) for making the society self reliant to handle these issues.
Anupam Mishra, a resident said, “Boundary wall is a basic need in the society to ensure safety of residents and we have been requesting the management for this since long but it wasn’t done. Boundary wall will not only ensure the security of residents but also it would prohibit entry of street dogs. Street dogs roaming in the society premises and basement area is another key issue for us.”
Mihir Kumar, another resident said, “Continuous water seepage in basement area in many towers is affecting the pillars of the buildings. We have been living here for last several years but still waiting for basic services including security.”
After the residents wrote to the management and threatened not to pay maintenance charges until their demands are fulfilled, the residents alleged the management has started cutting maintenance charges from prepaid electricity meter. It did not go down well with the residents and they have decided to protest against the management on Sunday.
